    Sorry about the delay. I am on a steam turbine ship and can only answer when we get to port. Every repair is a little different. Typically it can be just tightening the connection, cleaning corrosion off the wire, and even just changing out the wire. Most of our equipment sees pretty rough service (and hot ambient temps). After we repair it we may try an IR gun on it to compare the before and after readings since we don't carry a thermal imaging camera. They are pricey. Also, all the major electrical connections are 450V and high amperage. Nothing like watching a controller blow out of its box and across the deck.
